Model: Archer MR600  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.3.0 0.9.1

Hello,

 

So i'm having this problem with my Router Archer MR600 which i bought 6 months ago and at first i thought it supported VPN's but when i started configuring it i found out that the router itself can be setup as a OpenVPN/PPTP VPN and not as a VPN Client and this is a really big deal for me because My ISP does not provide a public ip to me and my WAN IP is a private IP and that means i cannot do any port forwarding so a VPN is my only choice but i can still port forward with a VPN thro my PC and it's no problem but the thing is that the VPN has a limited amount of devices to connect to and i want most of my home devices to be connected to a VPN and setting up a VPN on my router would allow me to do that Easily but the Archer MR600 doesn't support that and i'm very disappointed at TP-Link for their Hardware feature supporting, at first i thought the archer MR600 does support VPN's but it doesn't and i spent so much on it that i don't wanna spend more on a new router just for a VPN. and i see no reason it doesn't support being set as a VPN Client and there's no benefit for me if i set this up as a VPN server since i don't go out that much.

 

this would make TP-Links Routers a much Better service since the popularity of VPN's is increasing Each day and more people want to connect their router's to a VPN cause it's easier and more reliable and secure.

 

I'm not a Networking Expert so i'm sorry if there's something preventing this to be a option on the router 

 

But if there's a solution please Let me know 

 

And i hope TP-Link would release a New Firmware for VPN support 

Please put this at a Top Priority if Possible 

 

Thanks...

@TP-Link This is really strange, for a remote 4G router, please enable it. Should not be hard as all competitors have it as a standard functionality

@TP-Link Nowadays we have a big community of people in Spain working from home, and a lot of us need the VPN Client functionality enabled in our routers. I heard that TP-Link does not implement this on its 4g routers but it was too late for me as I've already bought one. So now, only because of this limitation I cannot go to work from another house I have because of the distance limitation of the company I work for. Really disappointed with TP-Link

@TP-Link I would also like to request this functionality. I was very surprised (and disappointed) to find this feature was not available. In all the routers I have bought previously, all of which have been cheaper than the MR600, have had VPN client support. As described by the original poster, with mobile carriers not giving you a public IP address, and hiding you away behind several layers of NAT, some internet services simply do not work. A VPN client is essential.

 

Thanks.

@TP-Link This is an important feature for me as well.  Please update the firmware to support this
